Adventure of Link 2 Mock Up

Share

Decided to try my hand at pixel art. In doing so I figured it would be a good lesson to start out by mimicking the very basics of pixel art. For this I decided to mock up a would be Adventure of Link 2 if it had happened on Gameboy. It was fun trying to make things work with the limited color palette. Most of the background elements are modified Zelda 2 tiles, but I rebuilt Link and the Iron Knuckle. The HUD is basically pulled from Metroid 2.

Good thinking on using the Metroid 2 HUD; that game is a great example of how to do Gameboy games. I really love the design you made for link, as he looks really tough and powerful in the picture. Good job; I'd play a remastered version of Zelda 2!

Nice, I want to play this!
